The following video shows some of the beam object new features that will be available in the upcoming VisualARQ 2.0 version:
Beam intersections at ends will be calculated. This will happen when two beams have one of their end points in the same position. However, it will possible to break this connection if needed.
Beam cut planes
In addition to automatic beam joints, it will possible to define different solutions for beam cut planes at the start and end points. Vertical, Horizontal and Perpendicular will be the preset options, but it will be also possible to enter a custom cut plane.
Rhinoforyou, VisualARQ french resellers, will be present as sponsor at the annual conferences rese arch MEETUP 2016, and will offer exclusive demos of Rhino, Grasshopper and VisualARQ.
rese arch MEETUP is an annual international conference and networking event bringing together practitioners and theorists of computational design in architecture, experts in digital manufacturing and related contemporary thinkers and philosophers.
One of the main supporter of the event is the prestigious École des Ponts ParisTech, which is launching the Advanced Master DESIGN by DATA.
DESIGN by DATA is also the topic of the spring 2016 edition of the rese arch MEETUP Paris hosted by VOLUMES: the event will host lectures elaborating on the idea of a design ruled by input parameters, big data, statistics, numerical simulations and its impact on the essence of architecture as a cultural discipline.
Organized by: Ján Pérnecky of rese arch (an independent platform supporting research, education and critical thinking in architecture in Europe and worldwide), in collaboration with Francesco Cingolani of Volumes Coworking.
"VisualARQ 2.0: flexible BIM solution for Rhino" will be presented at the Shape To Fabrication conference 2016 in London. The presentation will focus on the BIM features VisualARQ provides to Rhino and a sneak preview of some of the new features of the upcoming VisualARQ 2.0 version.
This event has a focus on cutting-edge technology, innovative construction and applications in architecture, engineering and design. This years speakers are shaping the future, unafraid to push technology and engineering to new heights.

VisualARQ 2.0 will come with plenty of enhancements regarding the Roof command.
In this sneak preview video you can see some of these new features:
New insert dialog
The roof object will have an insert dialog, like the rest of VisualARQ objects, from which you will be able to choose some insert parameters such as the roof type (hip, gable or shed), the cut edge type, or the slope angle.
Inserting it will be easy like drawing a rectangle (or like inserting slabs), including the option to pick 3 points from the command line. The roof ridge will be automatically aligned with the longest side.
The option to create roofs from boundary curves will be still available.
Multilayer roof styles
Roofs will be composed of slabs. This means that the roof styles will take one of the existing slab styles in the document and therefore they will be multilayer. It will be possible to create new roof styles by editing an existing slab style or creating new slab styles from a shortcut button.
When two roofs touch each other, the intersection between them will be automatically calculated. This interopearability will provide many new roof combinations and new designs that could not be done before.
Roofs from surfaces
Finally, it will be possible to create roofs from surfaces, no matter how complex they are. This operation will apply an offset to that surface according to the roof style thickness and will convert the resulting object into a roof.
